    We’re currently facing an issue where using keyboard shortcuts to copy and paste values between cells doesn’t persist the data when we navigate between pages. It seems to us that our handlers for onCellEditEnded and onRowEditEnded never get called. We were wondering if this might be a defect with wijmo? Here’s a stackblitz that can reproduce the problem.

    Our current version of wijmo is 5.20211.794

    Sorry but it seems you have mistakenly provided the wrong sample because we are able to perform copy/paste operation on the shared sample. Could you please confirm if the sample is correct or not? also if there are specific steps to replicate then do let us know.

    Hello again,

    Sorry for the delay. To be more specific, we believe the problem lies with the “onPasted” event handler in this stackblitz. Similar to our code, this handler is not being called after something has been pasted. The pasting handler gets called just fine but pasted does not. Sorry for not making that clear in the initial post. Could you examine the pasted and pasting handlers?

    Hi Peter,

    Sorry for our delay in response. The reason that onPasted method is not called is that you are setting e.cancel to true in the pasting event due to which the event is canceled is not propagated to the pasted event. If you wish to raise the pasted event also, I would suggest you either do not cancel the event by setting e.cancel or raise the event manually by calling the onPasted method of FlexGrid.

    Regards, Ashwin

    Thanks for your suggestion! We made some changes based on that and we are now seeing the desired behavior.
